Laurence Unveils 12 Published Poets
Laurence Unveils 12 Published Poets

We are proud to announce that 12 Laurence students are published poets in the national poetry anthology, A Celebration of Poets, Grades K-6, Fall 2020 edition (www.poeticpower.com). Panels of educators viewed entries from thousands of students from across the country to select the top submissions for publication in this anthology. Laurence School was also listed in the “Poetic Achievement Honor School.”  This award is given to schools who have a large number of entries of which over 50 percent are accepted for publication.

Congratulations to the following students:

  • Incoming 5th graders: Alexia A., Chaplin B., Cambria D., Felix H., Olivia H., Charlie H., Katie K., Hazel S., Teddi S. and Simon T.
  • Incoming 6th grader: Lyla H.
  • Recent graduate: Mae Mae G

These poems were written last fall during remote learning. What a great way to Represent the "L" during these unprecedented times!
